When it comes to logos, colors, fonts, and graphics for your brand, I believe that working smarter, not harder is a great policy.
There are SO many resources out there that offer options for logo design, font choices, and graphics. Gone are the days when paying thousands of dollars for a logo is necessary. I am not saying that you shouldn’t invest well in that part of your brand…it’s a super-important investment, obviously. However, the route to get access to that investment is now at your fingertips. The world is filled with a large variety of talented individuals who are digital/graphic artists. They have chosen to display their art and skills on the convenient websites available to consumers and entrepreneurs just like you and me.
We are so grateful for this digital share, because in a matter of minutes, you can access thousands of designs and creativity to inspire you and guide you through the visual branding process.
This is not a process you should necessary take on alone. It is helpful to have a second pair of eyes on the creative process to help narrow down the options and bring a fresh insight to what is possible for using a design. I believe that everyone should consistently have a second pair of eyes on their brand…it’s called perspective. Perspective is essential. Whether that second pair of eyes is your friend, family member, colleague, or [paid] branding consultant…it must be someone whose viewpoint you trust to be completely honest and raw with you.
Choosing a logo and other visual details of your brand is like choosing the thing that will REPRESENT you when you are not around. It speaks FOR you and your brand. It will be on everything you print and will weave itself into all that visually represents you. It’s important. It matters. Every things visual in your brand stems from it.
